Before I begin this review, I have one important thing to say about this book. Darker After Midnight is the tenth installment in Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series and HOLY SH*T THIS BOOK IS…OMG JUST…WOW!

Essentially, this book is about Chase and Tavia and how they find their HEA. But really, it’s so much more. So much happens it’s insane! I have to admit that when I first met Chase in book three, I didn’t feel much for him. Yes, I felt bad for him and h

5 stars – Paranormal/Vampire Romance

Wow! I loved it! I’ve been a big fan of this series from the beginning, and with its tenth installment, Lara Adrian definitely delivered the goods. Chase and Tavia are an awesome H/h pairing, and with some shocking surprises, an epic showdown, a satisfying ending, and a moving epilogue, it’s one of the best books of the series. There’s an 11th book mentioned (TBD) on the author’s website, so I’m hoping that means we haven’t seen the last of the Breed. 5 stars!

I was never a huge fan of Chase. But I have to say that this book has completely changed my mind about him. I think this was probably my favorite book of the entire series. I'm not giving any spoilers but the ending was just mind blowing. I couldn't read it fast enough. So much was happening. I'm so sad this part of the journey is at an end. But I am anxious to see how the spin off series will go. Hopefully we will get some glimpses of the entire "family" so we can at least see how they are doin ...more

Wow..i LOVED this one!!! I was really looking forward to reading it especially with how things ended in the last book but i have to admit i was a little bit nervous because Chase was never a character i overly cared for..he was an arrogant, cocky know-it-all...who in my honest opinion was not very likeable at all! Well Lara Adrian did a great job of redeeming him in this book..i now LOVE Sterling Chase!!! Yay!!

The romance between Chase and Tavia started out a little bit oddly but ended up being

Blog Rating: 4.5/5

Sterling Chase’s story has been building up for many books now and to say his journey has been bumpy and full of angst would be the understatement of the year. He’s seen his brother die, he’s loved his brother’s wife and watched her mate to another member of the Order. He’s killed his nephew when he was overtaken by bloodlust brought on by overdosing on drugs and all of this has slowly eaten away at Chase until he too is on the verge of

This whole series, and in particular this final instalment, can be summed up in three words - OH HELL YEAH!!!

Darker After Midnight picked up the action straight away, and with characters and storyline already well established, it was straight into the action. And after 9 books (and one novella), this climactic book had the feel of one, huge long finale. It was excitement from start to finish, with action, secrets uncovered and shocking discoveries happening all the way through (history of the B

It feels like I've been waiting to read Chase's story since forever, and well, I have. I fell in love with his character in Tegan's book and have seen him go from a highly respected member breed society to an Order warrior, to well... it hurts to think where he's gone lately.

But I think this was always the frame of mind he was supposed to be in, not the too far gone, but the bit reckless and out of control. He was always a rebel at heart and just needed

~After reading~

So...I must say, there were some parts in this book that really got me. I will admit I was drawn into the book once the beginning was over. The other surprising part is that I was actually interested in Tavia. I am never interested in a female character before!!! It is completely out of the question, but someone Lara made me want to follow Tavia (even though I still wish it wasn't a recycled character, would have been more delicious and exciting). Then there is the notecing crush/

Mind Blowing!

Wow, The author's writing captures you immediately with the thrill of Chase's sacrifice of turning himself into the police to save the Order from the set up evil caused by Dragos and with Chase finally getting his over due HEA. Chase and Tavia definitely heat up the pages with their chemistry.

I loved the introduction of the new female Tavia - totally awesome that there is the first Female BREED, not a BREEDMATE but a BREED. Her character was kick ass and I look forward to reading f

And so we come to the end of this part of the Midnight Breeds with Chase's book. At the end of Deeper Than Midnight, Chase surrendered to the police so they wouldn't find the Breed's hideout which Lucan and the rest of the Breeds decided to blow up anyway and head up north to Maine. Chase is in all kinds of trouble and things really hit the fan with the eyewitness comes to police headquarters.

So, the big question for me was did Chase redeem himself? And unfortunately, that's a big fat NO. I fel

I loved it! It was a perfect way to wrap up an amazing series...or shall I say story-arc?? I've been waiting for years for Chase to finally get his HEA and it was perfect. Tavia was so perfect for him, and even more kick-ass than any of the other Breedmates.(view spoiler) And the sex was really hot! I just wish there would have been a little more romance between them at the end. The ending seemed rushed and everything was ...more

Sterling Chase has been waiting for a long time for his happily ever after, but even though I was really excited about his story it took me a long time to get through the first 100 or so pages – I kept setting the book aside and reading bits of other things. I think the reason that I had a hard time with the start of the book was that author Adrian didn't really do anything to reconnected us with Chase before that 100 page mark, so whatever connection there was to Chase, and any sympathy for his ...more

I hate to give this one two stars, but that's what it is. It wasn't nearly as good as the other books in the series.

Chase has not been one of my favorite characters, he's very whiny and just needs a good dose of suck it up. I don't think he should have had his own book.

Tavia could have been more interesting, if we'd have had more backstory, but she fell kind of flat. Kind of like a reboot of Jenna's story. Although Jenna gets a bit more interesting in this book.

Tegan/Gabrielle are having issues

Carla's Review

Midnight Breed is one of the first paranormal romance books I read and I instantly fell in love with the creative and original world Lara Adrian created. The characters stick with you, well after the story has ended and you are always left clamoring for the next book. Every book in this series was great but I have to say that Darker After Midnight is the EPIC book of the series and was truly phenomenal. I really can't give much details without giving away spoilers, so I will do my

While I enjoyed the story and was glad to see some things wrapped up (namely the villain), Darker After Midnight wasn't a total success for me.

Tavia had the potential to be a very interesting character, and I thought Adrian's little surprise about her was great. Unfortunately, Tavia starts out as this sort of pathetic, needy individual and then, wham!, she's superwoman with all kinds of mad skills. It was so unbelievable that it had my head spinning. No character development, just zero to sixty

I’ve listened to seven of the books in the Midnight Breed series so I was interested in catching up with Darker After Midnight, the tenth book that was billed as the wrapup. I recommend the first four in the series which have intricate plots and real romance. As to this latest book, it’s no spoiler to reveal that the Order’s super evil archenemy Dragos is finally vanquished, albeit fairly easily, after nine books of buildup. Apparently the publisher had second

This book was so rediculously good. I'm not even sure I can review it. It's easily the best of the series. This may be slightly spoiler-y without actual spoilers. So read at your own risk.

Ok. I didn't realize this was the last book of the series, although I'm reading that it may continue in a different direction--focusing on younger characters. Would love to see that because I believe Kelen and Mira will be mated.

Everything that we've been wanting to happen all along and everything that you w

Such a wonderful addition to this terrific series! I will admit I was terribly worried about this book because I had been infuriated with Chase for a long time now. I'm glad I got to love him all over again. Chase used to be my favorite couple, I mean who didn't adored Harvard? But then he changed into someone we all ended up hating so fast... I guess we all NEEDED this book.

There's a lot of action packed up in this installment, so be ready for it. Lots of life changing events for everybody we k

Okay this book,I believe,is better than the previous 2 books.So I will give it 2.5 stars.
To start with,1/3 of the book was BORING.It was slow (too slow) and I didn't find myself enjoying it as such.It was like reading and reading and reading but I couldn't feel the book (I know this might sound crazy but when I read a book,I usually feel it.When the characters are happy,I am happy and when the characters are sad,I feel sad) but I felt nothing while reading till 1/3rd of the book.

This is the 10th full-length novel in Adrian's Midnight Breed series, a book her publisher is calling "climactic." And it is in that it resolves a major plotline in the books so far, although her website indicates there are at least two more Breed books coming. I'll reveal that below, after the SPOILER warning. But before that, let me say, this was a very good read. It covers the story of Sterling Chase and introduces a whole new angle to the Breed and Dragos's diabolical breeding program. That ...more

I love Lara Adrian's books! I was so excited to get my hands on this. It was great! Many questions answered, resolutions achieved and new questions to be answered!! Love the ending!!!!!! Can't wait for her next 3 books. They are going to be fast forwarded to the future though. I bet we get to see Kellan and Mira in one of the next books!!!!

Enjoyable new volume in the Midnight Breed series. I've always had a soft spot for Chase and seeing him brought so low then drag himself back up with the help of his gorgeous new breedmate (and Gen One female!) was great. There's plenty of action and a good amount of romance. I like that these females are getting more kickass as the series progresses. The first heroines were a bit Mary Sue for my taste.

This book marks an end to one of the long running storylines in the series. I'm quite glad abo

Actually 2.5 stars. Rounded up to 3 stars for Goodreads, mainly as a tribute to previous, less disappointing books in the series.

Chase has been one of my favorite characters in the Midnight Breed series ever since his introduction in Kiss of Crimson, and I have been eagerly anticipating his book. Unfortunately, Darker After Midnight isn't really about Chase. Instead, Chase's relationship with Tavia feels like an afterthought in a novel which is primarily about Dragos. Since the Dragos storyline

Darker After Midnight, the 10th book in the Midnight Breed series was completely riveting! I completed this pretty much straight through! I love how in this book (compared to the rest in the series)seemed to actually give some resolution. Not that the series has came to an end, (thank goodness) but at least there is more hope then simply two people finding love in a horrible world.

I have had my up and down feelings about Sterling Chase. There have been times in the the series where I truly thou

MINOR SPOILERS

I've really enjoyed this series and am a bit sad to see it end although I understand that a series, at some point, needs to end.

Chase, having been on the cusp of turning Rogue for ever since the death of his brother, finally finds an anchor to keep him grounded and sane.

Tavia, like all the women of this series, finds herself in the middle of a living nightmare. Surrounded by blood and death. As she becomes Chase's anchor, he becomes hers as she suddenly finds out her whol

I have been waiting for Harvards book a long time now. Like I said before, Chase is special to me , because I think he's the diferent type of PNR heroe. When you read a book in this genre your main heroe is typically a scared male with a dark past that is revieled to the readers via flashbacks or recollection of past events. This is not the case with Sterling Chase. The once who followed the series witnessed he's downfall at first hand. Chase started off as a very promising young Breed male, wit ...more
